of unauthorized workers and lastly establish an improved process for admitting future workers to serve our workforce needs while simultaneously protecting all workers. other bipartisan groups of senators have stood in the same spot before trumpeting similar proposals but we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. we believe we have a window of opportunity to act. but we will only succeed if the effort is bipartisan. by their presence today, my republican colleagues are making a significant statement about the need to fix our broken immigration system. we democrats are equally serious. we do not want immigration as a wedge issue. much rather we want a bipartisan bill that solves the problem and becomes law. we recognize that in order to pass bipartisan legislation none of us can get everything we want. that's why our framework says we can address the status of people living here illegally while at the same ti

. and lastly, government programs. president obama took a shot at republicans when he said this about entitlements. >> the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not zap our initiative. they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> i'll take that poll. the public's predominantly in favor here. when we polled on medicare, 54% said it only needed minor modifications if anything. joining us david corn and michael scherer. gentlemen, thank you. i didn't know this until you put it all together. i have a sense that on the right if you're a moderate positions like these polls say, you're considered a liberal. if you're in the middle, the right sees you as the left. it's true. what do you think? >> well, i think the right is screaming that this is a liberal speech which should come as no surprise. barack obama has always been a progressive democrat. a pragmatist as a government manager, but progressive in his values. >> i know you're on the progressive si

, it's not high among them. this is a play for our emotions and we need to see that as such and lastly during his speech today the issue of gun control shouldn't be a divisive one. wait a minute, for obama to sermonize about the problems of divisiveness, like john edwards sermonizing to us about the problems of, well, infidelity. plain hypocritical. and former fox advisor contributor, karl rove. >> good to be back. >> sean: first of all, i'm watching obama, you're watching obama. different guy in the second term? >> more confrontational, more aggressive, more focused on the politics of it and less focused on the purpose of it. we saw that today with his announcement. i mean, you know, this is supposed to be done to prevent another newtown, but take a look at the three big legislative things he's suggesting, universal background check, wait a minute, the weapons used in newtown were bought with a background check by the killer's mother. not going to stop newtown. unworkable, even he admits you look in the fine language, well, we're not going to require background check for the sale of w
, washington has to understand spending is the real problem for deficits and debt. and lastly, why is this country taxing the most productive earnings? investors in small business owners. it's just class warfare nonsense. it reduces incentives for the long run. it's all wrong. i'm for free market economic prosperity, not class warfare. let me just tell you this. taxing rich people, taxing upper end successful earners, you can't tax your way into prosperity. you can't tax your way into a balanced budget. you doubt me? just take a look at europe. particularly western europe. anyway, i'm going to get some comments on my little rant. here now are jared bernstein, former vice president biden chief economist. jared, i'm sure you agree wefrg i said. how do you react to my one cheer? >> i always enjoy listening to you. i think you're being an awfully harsh grader here. averting recession and you give it 33%? >> right. >> and then the markets. i always think of you as someone who thinks the markets are conveying information, but you're disagreeing with them. >> that's the one cheer. i give
. lastly, i think this is an opportunity for this committee to finally do the work that are it should have been doing for years. when you read the arb report and you realize that we have never done an authorization of the state department in the six years that i've been here, we've never looked at how foreign aid has been spent. we've never done a top to bottom review. i know that is something that people like you, who come to this position, look at as something that is healthy and can be done in partnership. i know there was some mention of cost, and i was really disappointed with the arb when the first thing that came out of the mouths of two people that i respect was money, money, money. the fact is, this committee would have no idea whether the appropriate amount of money is being spent, or if that could have prevented what happened in benghazi, because we've never done an authorization. soy look at this as a tremendous opportunity, and i want to close again by thanking you for your service, thanking you for your friendship, thanking you for your transparency, and i certainly look forw
casualty. >> and lastly, i want to ask you, france has a lot of important areas in that region, specifically pertaining to their uranium, they extract from some of those countries. i know that french special forces have been right in niger. they immediately go to where these rich natural resources exist in these countries that they need. are you worried about this becoming sort of an economic war, kind of like what we saw in iraq for oil, this idea of these imperialists coming to get the resources and that's what al qaeda can use as a real, a recruiting tool? >> well, luke, you make a great point. we're only going to achieve security and stability in mali and niger, in mowauritania, in this whole region if we address and help those governments address those long-standing internal disputes. it's because of 50 years of complaints and disputes in northern mali that this whole destabilization of mali began in the first place. we have to have elections that restore a legitimate democratic government in mali and the malian government itself needs to address the real concerns and comp

whatever it is that you don't want to do. >> why do you think, lastly, people are unable to stick with those resolutions? >> i think they don't give it enough time, first of all and habits take a long time to change so you really want to stick with it over a sustained period of time. some people have a hard time even getting out of the galt and i think it's because, obviously, these things are hard to do. if it were not hard to do we'd all be doing them and they wouldn't have to be new year's resolutions. >> we'd all be perfect. we can start by practice what can we preach in 2013. thank you, doctor. >> thanks, keith. >>> big gains on wall street. we'll check in with cnbc courtney regan. she has more on that and the rest of the day's business headlines. hi, courtney. >> reporter: good morning. stocks are soaring on this live there deal, markets reassured by the uncertainty that's no dissipating. the dow is up about 230 points and a percentage basis, tech-heavy nasdaq is leading the gains with the best inter day gain in six months. the first trading day of the year does seem to be a

surplus from the smallest to the top, the snowballing strategy and lastly develop a hardball strategy, call them before they call you. always know that the best time to negotiate with creditors could be at the end of the month because they're trying to collect commissions so all of these things are little tips and strategies to make sure you put the ball in your hands and start standing on the fact that you will be debt free by the end of 2013. >> what about investing savings to get out of debt? how risky is that? >> well essentially i mean debt is, it should be a short term strategy to try to eliminate it, credit card debt or collections debt. investing should be a long-term strategy so you never want to try to use a long-term strategy to pay down short-term debt. investing should be, i see a lot of individuals saying i can invest $10 in this stock today and hopefully it will be the next where i can take down that and pay all of my debt. that's too risky. it's not atlantic city slot machines, this is investing. you want a dollar cost investment strategy that's five years or more but

[ laughter ] cheryl: no, i am out running. the fact that dvr viewing is actually boosting the numbers. they are bringing in more revenue. dennis: maybe they will find a good deal. cheryl: there is this before we go to commercial break. it is basically the hottest ride on the road right now. it will be a hotspot. bentley is equipping its sedan with wireless internet that can handle up to eight devices. eight devices in your car. totally safe for everyone peered with just a touch of a button. allowing passengers to use ipads, wireless keyboards. there are 8-inch flat screens with build in dvd players. they will make their debut this march at the geneva auto show. because we all need to do more things while we drive. right. dennis: you do not want to miss tomorrow show. i will have an exclusive interview wi
't foresake one for the other. and then lastly, i'll continue to fight for transparency that keeps the government accountable to the people. few of us agree with everything that is done or spoken under protection of our first amendment rights, our freedom of the press. but as a son of vermont printers and publishers, you can bet that i have very serious concerns about the press being shut out. of course i oppose the disclosure of properly classified government information, but i think we have to make sure that legislative efforts to protect or prevent classified leaks don't ink fringe upon our fundamental freedoms, including the freedom of the press. and there i might say to the administration as i have said to past administrations, don't overclassify things. don't put a classification on everything that you do, including those things where you want to cover your mistakes. this is an open and free country. let's keep it that way. so i'll keep pushing to update our privacy laws, to address emerging technology and the internet, including the electronic communications privacy act. we

mandates. states should be given increased flexibility to create efficiencies and achieve results. lastly, congress should not impose maintenance of effort provisions of states as a condition of receiving federal funding. in other words, it states receive federal cuts, washington should not demand the same level of service without providing the same level of funding. essentially, all of these points can and will be coming down to flexibility and partnership. we need the flexibility to take care of the unique needs of our citizens and the challenges of our states. what we do not need is a one-size-fits-all solution or more unfunded federal mandates passed on to our states. the need to be treated as partners, not underlings. we want to work to implement good public policy. as we told congressional leaders, reducing the deficit by shifting costs to the state is not indicative of the good partnership. whether it is deficit reduction or other pressing national issues, we feel the two principles will guide these relationships with the federal government and the state. the principles are the fle
quality assurance. third, poor security. fourth, questionable sustainability. lastly, corruption. let's talk about inadequate planning. we are at risk now of wasting billions of dollars if the agencies charged with implementing new programs and constructing new facility is to not first answer some basic questions. i have been in washington 30 something years. i almost fell off the stage. [laughter] i came from ohio. maybe i keep this midwestern approach to issues, sort of basic simple questions that you would ask if you were buying a house, buying a car, or trying to lecture your daughter on what school to attend. sort of simple questions, logical questions. these questions are not being asked first -- are not being answered, i should say, in afghanistan. questions such as, are these programs and buildings needed? have you asked the afghans if they want them? have you coordinated it with any of the other organizations working for either of the u.s. government or the international community? have we designed them to meet any specific need that the afghans have? and have redesigned them

, the dynamics of a region as they are today. lastly, i think this is an opportunity for this committee to finally do the work it should have done for years. when you read the report, and you realize we have never done an authorization, we have never looked at how foreign aid is spent, never done a top to bottom review. i know it's something that people like you look at as something that is healthy, and can be done in partnership. i know there was some mention of cost. and i was really disappointed with the arb when the first thing that came out of the mouths of two people that i respect was money, money, money. the fact is the this committee would have no idea whether the appropriate amount of money is being spend, or if that could have prevented what happened in benghazi. so i look at this as a tremendous opportunity, and i want to close, again, by thanking you for your service, for your friendship, for your transparency, and i certainly look forward to your testimony. i know it will be presented in a way that will be constructive and helpful to us in the future, thank you. >> thank y
of the region as they really are today. and then lastly, i think this is an opportunity this committee to finally do the work that it should have been doing for years. when you read the arb report and you realize we have never done an authorization of the state department in the six years that i've been here, we've never looked how foreign aid has been spent. we have never done a top to bottom review, i know it is something people like you who come to this position look at something that is healthy and can be done in partnership. i know there was some mention of costs and, i was really disappointed with the arb when the first thing that came out of the mouths of two people that i respect was money, money, money. the fact is this committee would have no idea whether the appropriate amount of money is being spent or that could have prevented what happened in benghazi because we've never done an authorization. so i look at this as a tremendous opportunity. i want to close again by thanking you for your service, thanking you for your friendship, thanking you for your transparency, and i ce
. >> let me just lastly mention, you mentioned darfur in your opening comments. the humantarian crisis was so severe. we still have concerns in the southern and blue nile south sudan still has problems. burma where we had hope in november, there has not been progress made. i hope that you will make these areas where there is -- humanitarian crises a highest priority to try to protect the safety of the people that live in these areas. >> i will. i intend to do that. first of all the president, i think, will continue to -- with an appointment of the special envoy to the sudan, we just had princeton lyman, who's done a great job under tough circumstances. i was there myself during the course of their referendum on the independence. i have met with their president many times. i met not with bashir but people underneath him in the north. and my hope is that we can get the status of the number of components of the c.p.a. that were not fulfilled finally fulfilled. by nile, and others are human tragedy. the bombings are continuing. starvation taking place. displacement. and in some ways darfur
agitating the u.s. and its allies into conflict. and lastly, there is the issue of the size of their nukes. there is no indication that the north koreans have created a nuclear weapon small enough to ride on top of these rockets that. is a huge challenge that takes a lot of work. they are not there yet. that's one of the reasons many intelligence analysts are being looking at these very sharp words, wolf, as secretary panetta suggested, you have to be serious about it but it's probably just an empty threat at this point. >> good explanation, tom. thank you. >>> and joining us now, the abc news global affair's anchor, christiane amanpour. how credible are these threats coming out of north korea? >> they are credible as threats and they hope to make these a deterrent but when it comes to could they actually and do they intend to launch anything against the united states? the consensus is no. not only do they not have the ability to invade, but they don't have the ability on long-range missiles and they are not considered to have the ability to put a nuclear warhead on a missile. the problem,
, they paid off a lot of debt. lastly, there's money on the sidelines to come in. that could fuel a rally. of course, there are cons because it's not always good news. the first one is, and i think you have to be concerned with this, the outlook for the u.s. fiscal picture. that could be a problem, especially going into march or february when we have the debate in washington. that could be a problem. also, profit growth. while it's up, the rate of growth is slowing a bit. and to some professionals, that's a concern. >> those are things to look at. for a lot of people, they pulled back because they were concerned about their future and their retirement savings in many cases. >> as they should be. >> looking at this, based on your age, how does that factor in to whether or not you should invest and how involved you should be? >> well, a general rule of thumb is the younger you are, the more money you have in stocks. what you should always have is a diversified portfolio. you should always have money in stocks, bonds, maybe commodities like gold, a smaller percentage, 5% to 10% at the most.
in somalia. somalia has a long way to go but the fact that president is on was hit lastly, that our secretary of state formally announced the recognition of that government, this is inconceivable just a few years ago. i think again that's where we are at our best. not necessarily leading, supporting, training, equipping, helping in ways that the africans ask us to help. that's what we do best. >> good afternoon. i am with the institute for policy studies, and just really want to applaud the center for hosting this event, bring us together the week of an incredible inauguration and celebration of martin luther king day, to be able to talk about foreign policy. so i thank you for your vision. commander hamm, there's so many areas as she spoke that i thought i want to quibble on and question. i guess at the core of it when you talk about the state department giving at the 9 billion the department of defense giving 500 million to africa, it seems a bit disingenuous. primarily because the state department covers funds for private military contractors, that many would think are covered by the depar
to senator menendez talking about the motivation for the legislation. [video clip]>> lastly, as someone who is an advocate of making sure that our economy is strong as a result of immigration reform, and also that we preserve a core value of family unification. how do we do that in a way that is smart and promotes illegal immigration as opposed to having families divided for so long and then pressures on to make choices on becoming reunified. i believe we can take care of all of those issues. host: is that a good reason to push legislation forward? guest: i like that better than the political reason. some have cited we need immigration reform because republicans have not won elections but i do not think we should set our public policy on immigration on challenges we might have elect orally. the -- electoraly. we should set our agenda on what is the most fair way to deal with the challenges, as currently the system is broken. it is not working for anybody. it is not working in the urban immunities, and certainly not in the counties that i represent in eastern indiana. we need to keep clear g
